    April 13th is Songkran, Thai New Year, whole country has a water fight and gets mullered, good times. If you want some diving let me know I have a mate who is the lead instructor at a school near the islands here. Sometimes Whale Sharks, plenty of other stuff he says!
    Hot season is March through May time, depending on where you are in the country will depend on the rainy season.

    I will let the Ladyboys know you are on your way

    here's an interesting fact about Thailand. a lot of tourists seem to fall out their hotel windows and smash their noggins and the police claim its suicide.
    when it still looks like they been thrown.
    just saying

    Thailands awesome. If you fancy doing the whole backpacker thing then you can't go wrong with island hoping, Phi Phi, Ko Lanta, Koh Tao (great for diving) Koh Samui, Ko Pha Ngan which has full moon party once a month which is crazy. It's a massive beach which has about 10 stages all playing different genres of music there is also a half moon party but never got to go.

    PS- bag up.

    They are quite literally full of shit, where I live anyways, Nov - Feb is the rainy season. The only reason they want you going then is because it is High Season and the prices as you probably saw double.

    Kenneth, you have to be here a while and get yourself tangled up in some sort of web to get the over the balcony treatment, but yeah, you are a foreigner, they dont give a flying fuck, and will suicide most shit to sweep it away. Once heard of a guy near me, was beaten up pretty bad, and then found drowne in 1 inch of water, but of course coppers, he killed himself :shrug: Simple rules to follow, never ever argue with a local, never raise your voice at them for sure, you are 50/50 to get a bullet in the head. But it really isnt that hard to avoid conflict, at heart they are non conflict people, but if you get into it with them, ok they gonna fuck you up regardless!

    Went there a year ago. First thing to watch out for is the water and food. Try to find places that at east look clean and always only drink and use the bottles water they sell. It is super easy to get the gut nasties.
    They also sell shit 3x what it's worth at the market, so barter like hell and get yourself some decent fakies.
    We went to BK, Phuket and a Phi Phi cruse. All pretty cool, just need to be carely with your money and how much theyre asking for.
